To be upfront with everyone, this was not a review code. She’s in her senior year of high school, getting ready to start college, and maybe it’s time you try to date again. She wants you to make friends, to get back out there! As I said before, you have seven dads to choose from, and they are all different. The music is fun and bouncy that fits in nicely in the background, and it has a cute theme song that you may find yourself humming on occasion. The Dadsona creator (yup) is really fun, letting you decide what you want your dad to look like. I still don’t, and it was just pure damn luck I put that thing back together.You’re a dad, a single dad, surrounded by other (mostly) single dads. You have a health nut, a goth, a drifter badass, a teacher, a one-upper, and they all have their pros and cons, some more than others if you ask me. I’ll even be honest, I didn’t get it on the first try, but was not willing to fail a date, so I backed up and tried again. Another mini-game that I really struggled with was the minigolf with Brian. I shoulda guessed he’d be into a store called Dead, Goth, and Beyond!With all of its dad puns and mini-games, we can play it to our heart's content, and play it I have. You and your daughter, Amanda, are moving across town to start a new chapter in life. he, or she, died, a while ago, so it’s been just you and Manda Panda for a while. The moments between your character and Amanda can be almost tear-jerking at times, and the interactions between you and the other dads are great, be them good or bad. The art style is absolutely wonderful, very anime and cartoonish, the dads both attractive and cute and the kids absolutely adorable. I’m colorblind, so for the life of me I could not tell what the gargoyle even looked like.However, once you begin to follow the path of a certain bird, the story becomes more focused.
But honestly, the more I got to know him, the more I kinda loved him. You don’t get to pick your shot, the shot has a ticker that moves each second. Let’s just say I wasn’t pleased and leave it at that. Sometimes, the guy’s gonna dump you after you lay yourself out to him literally and figuratively after sleeping with him on his boat and… Supposedly there was talk of adding more dads, so hopefully there will be more to look forward to in the future! With wonderful writing and art, this game is amazing.
As a self-proclaimed hunter-gatherer and the only human in the school, it’s fun to learn about her interests and personality as she interacts with the birds.
In addition to cute new backgrounds that contrast well against the stock-photo pigeons, the Steam release of Hatoful Boyfriend adds a new scene for the only female bird, Azami. Hatoful Boyfriend has a strange premise, and though it embraces that weirdness fully, it is able to surpass the label of silly dating sim by presenting interesting themes and characters through strong writing.
Though the writing is immensely enjoyable, the first term suffers from pacing issues.
I bounced between so many events, it felt like time was passing by too quickly, which seemed like a wasted opportunity for me to get to know each of the birds better before deciding which to pursue.
